Sociedad de Socorro del Barrio de La Dehesa

Relief Society.  I've only been 2 times the entire 3 years we have lived here.  But man these ladies are a riot.  They LOVE games down here.  LOVE THEM.  So, usually at each activity some type of game is thrown into the evening.  I just happened to win this one ;)
My dear friend and tallest Chilean I know, Valy Pardo and I.  Object of the game:  Take the other person's masking tape off of their nose and have it stick to yours.  No hands.  
I won ;)

Angela Melendez y yo.  Yo gane ;)
Francisca Osses and I:  Oh I felt so bad winning to this sweet one.  I gave her my prize!
Yep.  I'm a winner.  And so are all of you :)  
I LOVE the ladies in this ward.  They are so much fun.

And That's It!

After making our way through downtown, we got int our car and rode the rest of the way around the peninsula as the sun began to set.  
 This is the Argentine portion of Busios.  They speak Spanish in this little bay, not Portuguese.  Apparently they felt like they needed to stake out a spot and call it there own?

There were little lookout spots all of the way around the coast.  We stopped at every single one of them and Jake was my stalwart companion.  What a beautiful gem this place is.  

We wrapped up an unbelievable vacation with a little silliness that was captured by Kate.  

All he wanted was a nap.  

Not looking like that was gonna happen!  I'm sure our neighbors were happy to see us go!
They wore their Brazilian futbol jerseys out and we wore them out!
Couldn't have asked for better.  Brazil was good to us. 

Getting a Taste of Downtown

From Turtle Beach we headed back to the cutest little downtown to check it out in the daylight.  
Did you wonder for just a second?  No, they aren't real. 
I couldn't get enough of the colorful boats everywhere!

Checking out the fish
This is the French actress who put Busios on the map.  It was her favorite spot to escape.  The world began to notice :)

The little water taxis that were running back and forth from the cruise ship with folk stopping in for a few hours.

Kate really wanted to create one of these.

We took her to lunch instead ;)

Love this

Her picture is everywhere :)
One of my favorite guys

Two of my favorites thinking they are hilarious

We LOVED this quaint, little town.


Yay!  We managed a family photo!!

Enjoying our stroll 

Busios.  We love it.
